2007 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol
70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc. A wine Nicolas Thienpont modestly describes as “simple”, merely serves to support the saying that great wine is effortless. On the nose this shows fresh, ripe, subtle notes of black-skinned fruit – dark cherry and plum with hints of dark chocolate. The palate is almost crunchy with wonderfully fresh fruit. Perfumed, elegant, black stone fruit flavours spread across the palate. This is understated, yet perfectly balanced.
